the score

Posted on Tue, Jan 14, 2003 at 4:00 AM

The General Assembly opens its session with no money to spend, thanks to the budget shortfall. Contrary to rumor, the governor will not be covering legislators' bar tabs.

score: -3

Under pressure from Republican legislators, Gov. Warner says he'll reopen 12 DMV offices he ordered shut in October. So now the Republicans want more government?

score: +2

A rash of Fan street muggings worries neighbors. Almost makes us nostalgic for the days of SUV-slashings.

score: -4

Delegate Viola Baskerville of Richmond introduces a resolution to express regret over the 1959 closing of schools in Prince Edward County, an attempt to avoid desegregation. "Regret"? How about shame?

score: 0
